The Commercial, . Union ' City,, Tenn.
Fo the Lady Voter FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12. 1919. ESTIMATING PROFIT fEVIEID! ENEWED! nion City of The last legislature conferred upon 'women partial suffrage, and you may now vote in municipal elections. I extend congratula tions, and take occasion to announce to you my candidacy for a second term as Mayor of Union City, and to ask your vote and influence. I confess a sense of delicacy in electioneering with the ladies, as it is a new thing, and I hesitate to annoy you with my claim. However suffrage is not merely a privilge, but carries with it responsibilities, one of whch is passing upon the merts of candidates for office. In. asking your support, I shall not offend your dignity and common appeal to sentiment; on the contrary, I appeal solely to your reason and judgment, because I believe women are as intelligent as men. It has always been customary among all political parties to accord pub lic officials the endorsement of a second term. Until now, no mayor of Union City has ever been denied, or even opposed, a second term, who sought it NOT A SINGLE REASON HAS BEEN SUGGESTED FOE DENTING JIE THAT WHICH HAS BEEN ACCOBDED THE MAYORS BEFORE, $IE. My official term has covered the two year war period, the most trying in our national history. While prices of labor, street materials, fuel for the water and light plant, etc, have soared upward and the salaries of city employees have had to be raised and justly so to meet increasd cost of living, your taxes, water and lights have remained the same, and in some instances powered. - - i The salaries of most, if not all, of our publio school teachers have been increased during my administration and let it be understood now, that if re-elected, I favor and shall urge a farther increase or their salaries, .Lvery body knows our teachers are underpaid, and I intend to correct this condi tion. Large increased expenses brought about by (war, without correspond- tag increase in the city's income, has necesarily curtailed improvements and betterments. Now that the war is ended, and with the return to normal con ditions, if re-elected, these will be resumed, with especial attention to those parts of town which have had the least done for them. I stand for a moral town, a healthy and happy citizenship, and pledge my best efforts to this end. . ,r.ij . I am opposed to all factionalism, and if re-elected, will have no favor' ites to rejward and no enemies to punish, but will be Mayor of the whole people and treat all with the courtesy that is their due. I repeat again, that I only ask the customary endorsement of a second term, and I appeal to your spirit of fairness. When you go to vote, let your judgment guide your hand, and if the verdict of the people shall be against me, I shall gracefully bow to their will and give my loyal and unstinted support to the new Mayor. If your verdict shall be in my favor, as I am sure it will, I pledge the best that is within me to the faithful service of my fellow citizens. Respectfully and sincerely, F. L. PITTMAN. F. S.

And certainly it ought to be made to take care of the worker's sunset days when labor is no longer" possible, to him, and should be no longer necessary. And if it is made to do even these, indus try will have to be adjusted to a schedule of production, distribution and reward which will stop the leaks toward the pockets of men who do not assist production in any way, and turn all streams for the benefit of those who do. In order to create a system which shall bo as inde pendent of the good will of benevo lent employers as of the ill-will of selfish ones, we shall have to find a basis in the actual facts of itself. It costs Just as much physical strength to turn out a day's work when wheat is II a bushel, as when wheat is $2.60 a bushel. Eggs may be 12 cents a dozen or 90 cents a doz en it makes no difference in the un its of energy a man uses in a produc tive day's work. , One would think that the real bas is of value would be the cost of trans muting human energy into articles of trade and commerce. But no; that most honest of all human activities is made subject to the speculative shrewdness of men who can produce false shortages of food and other commodities, and thus excite anxiety of demand in society. It is not in industry that the trou ble lies, but in those regions beyond, whero men lie in wait to seize the fruits of industry and create false scarcities for the sake of arousing an anxious demand for things which, normally, are and ought to bo ac cessible to all who engage in daily productive pursuits. We must begin with the land; we must continue with the day's labor; and we must keep so close, so jeal ously close to both theso fundamen tals that we shall be suspicious and fearful of all that robs the land of men, and robs labor of its primal importance in material life." i We shall think out, and .try out, and establish more enduring) economic systems as we go on about bur work, than we shall ever be able, to do sit ting idle with our heads in bur hands trying to "think" a new world sys tem out of our brains. i The day's work is the hub around which the whole wheel of earth-life swings. It must be kept central, both in our thinking and our act ion. Any system that shunts the day's work off to one side as unim portant, is riding to a fall. Mr. Fords Page in Dearborn Indepen dent.
